Thunderbolt / details and announcements

Posted: February 24, 2011 in Apple, Audio

New Macbook Pro have finally been unveiled today (and are available at the App Store). Apple presents details about Thunderbolt technology, that it has been working on with Intel in order to speed up its release : it provides two 10 Gbits/s channels (that is twice USB3 throughput) and daisy-chaining of up to 6 devices (including Apple’s displays as it manages both PCI Express and DisplayPort protocols).

Intel also presented the new data transfer technology as well as industry support. Among companies that have announced Thunderbolt compatible devices (or are planning to release some) are LaCie, Western Digital, Apogee and Universal Audio.
